To Smoke or Not Too Smoke?

It is all up to my husband whether I smoke or not.  

I have been asking him to gradually quit smoking since last year for our daughter's sake.  I think he went as far as reducing it to three sticks a day. He also tells me that he never finishes a stick.  

I was on the phone talking to him awhile ago.  I heard him buying cigarettes.  And then I told him calmly that someone is asking me at work to hang out and smoke during our breaks.  I told him that I would take the invite and start smoking too.  Since he can't stop, maybe I should start.

He then gave me a violent reaction that it's not good for me because I'm a woman and it doesn't look good when women do that.  And then I told him that our lungs are one and the same anatomically and functionally and our gender has nothing to do with it.  

And so, I heard him tell the lady in the sari-sari that he changed his mind about the cigarette.  

If he happens to tell me again that he smoked a couple, I would tell him that I would do the same thing the next day.  And then I'll make a report that I did smoke (even if I didn't).  

Hope this works!  Crossing my fingers!
